Rumor Roundup (Mar. 22, 2018): McMahon and Woken Matt, Mysterio, Greatest Royal Rumble, Ciampa/Gargano, more!

Speculating on the rumors surrounding pro wrestling is a favored pastime of many fans, perhaps second only to actually watching the matches. In this daily column, we take a look at the latest rumors being churned out by the pro wrestling rumor mill.

Important reminder: Rumors are just that -- rumors. None of this has been confirmed as legitimate news or fact, it's just circulating around the pro wrestling rumor mill. Remember, take it all with a grain of salt.

Rumors for the Day:

  • Vince McMahon thought Matt Hardy’s Ultimate Deletion might “bomb”, a source told WrestleZone.
  • Though that site says it was “a struggle” to get Ultimate Deletion on WWE television, the company considers it a success and more Hardy productions should be coming.
  • Rey Mysterio is scheduled to be in Birmingham, Alabama later this week to have his injured biceps tendon evaluated as a step in possibly signing a new WWE deal, per PW Insider.
  • WWE Network users report next month’s Greatest Royal Rumble is promised as an upcoming event on the service when they indicate they want to cancel their subscription. Jerry Lawler said on his Dinner With The King podcast that he and Jim Ross will be calling the Saudi Arabian show.
  • According to Dave Meltzer, Tommaso Ciampa vs. Johnny Gargano is definitely happening at TakeOver: New Orleans.
